Have a cup of tea during a traditional tea ceremony or marvel at Chinese calligraphy being drawn live. The young and upcoming dancer Nick Coutsier will bring an androgynous performance while actor and author Mostafa Benkeroum will bring poetry. There will be drinks and music and the lovely surrounding of the old harbor will make it a truly special night.
